Fiio Q1 Mark II DSD decoding

Hello everybody!

I just got my Q1 Mk II and been doing some tests.
I’m trying to make it work in DoP mode in the Fiio app (iPhone 6S) with DSD files and the only thing I hear is hiss and noise (no green light in the DAC). I´ve tried Audirvana on a Mac but I think that the decoding is made by the software itself (no green light in the DAC also).

I’m doing something wrong? Anyone have succeeded on making the DAC decode DSD natively?

Thanks in advance.

So you have dop output selected when using the fiio app? Try unplugging the q1, making sure the fiio app is closed, plug in the q1 and turn it on, then open the fiio app and try again. Sometimes the fiio app will break and do what you mention

On mac it’s most likely doing d2p, but I am not familiar with Mac or Audirvana

Thanks for the reply!

I’ve tried as you said but couldn’t make it work…
I’m trying right now with the ONKYO HF Player, I can hear the file but no DSD Light in the Fiio.

Huh, I can get mine working on Android with UAPP and on windows with foobar and asio, but I wonder what’s going on

I’ll try later to make a test on a Windows computer with the Fiio suggested settings in Foobar. What other audio players in iOS do DoP?

I know this one does but I don’t know about others

Edit: there is a korg player too

I’ve found the solution and is this great app from the Japanese developer Cyberfort called “Kaiser Tone”.
There is a free version and a paid one, I could say it works perfectly and has lots of options and tweaks.

Thanks! After a few tries, I was able to make the Fiio app work too, but is really unstable and the GUI is terrible.

Yeah fiio music isn’t the best, it also gets really unstable with a large library
